10:00pm
could have gotten me one. i did. try the unmistakable flavor of dunkin' donuts smoked sausage breakfast sandwich. hurry in today. america runs on dunkin'. this is fox 5 news at 10:00. we're following several big stories tonight. new york city's mayor gives into public pressure cancelling this weekend's marathon. >> plus a weather alert just days after sandy, the storm ravaged northeast is keeping a close eye on another potential storm. >> and gunfire in an upscale d.c. neighborhood.
10:01pm
tonight the son of a local tv news anchor is facing charges. but we begin tonight with change of heart from new york city's mayor. thanks for joining us tonight. i'm shawn yancy. >> i'm brian bolter. this evening it became official after outrage continuing to run the new york city marathon mayor bloomberg caved. fox 5's will thomas starts us off in the newoom. what led to this? >> all week organizers said the race would go on. it brings in nearly $350 million to new york alone, but the outcry was too loud. for instance, as many of you know, much of lower manhattan is still in the dark not to mention staten island where the race would have started. hese giant generators are in place for the race to power things like race clocks. the thing is that's enough juice to power up hundreds of homes. >> the city of new york is not going to give up. the city of new york is coming back and this race will demonstrate that resilience.
10:02pm
>> race organizers were certain the marathon would go on as planned. they donated a million bucks to relief efforts and the marathon like those in the past is responsible for bringing in millions of dollars to the local economy, but friday during the 5:00 news word came. ing news out of new york city. mayor michael bloomberg says the new york city marathon will not happen sunday. >> i really couldn't believe it because it seemed like the mayor of the city said it was a go. >> he's a maryland runner among the estimated 40,000 runners who expected to take part in the event. harris rosenslide was planning to run with his buddy steve who is already in new york all the way from new zealand. steve is blind and running it year after year is extra special. now it will be a weekend in new york without the big race. >> maybe we'll take some run in central park or we'll try to do something or fry to enjoy new york city -- try to enjoy new york city for what it's worth.
10:03pm
>> harris is certainly sympathetic of the criticism and the suffering. the race would have started on staten island where at least 20 people died. it would have shut down roads and bridges already congested post sandy and as many as 1,000 cops would have been deployed to keep racers safe instead of diverting those resources to help victims. >> i can also understand the other side of the argument of going forward and showing that we can recover from these kinds of things. i believe they did run the race after 9/11. >> mayor bloomberg issued a statement late friday. it reads in part, "we cannot allow a controversy over an athletic event, even one as meaningful as this, to distract attention away from all the critically important work that is being done to recover from the storm and get our city back on track." the internet at work here, too. a lot of people who signed up to run the marathon but didn't like the idea it was still going on organized on facebook
10:04pm
to meet up at the starting point on staten island. instead of running they were going to volunteer to help. another website is set up where runners are donating their hotel rooms to victims without power or without homes. again this thing has been canceled. >> will thomas tonight. in new york and new jersey patience running thin, millions spending their fifth night without electricity. temperatures are plummeting. many people feel hopeless. they have lost their homes, food, water, gas, and many say the response has not been good enough. residents in hard hit staten island vented their frustrations today. >> everything is terrible, terrible. everything is going downhill. this is not america. i don't know what it is. >> i don't have anything, anywhere to go. i don't have no clothes. all the clothes i have on they gave to me at the recreation center. >> staten island suffered the highest death toll of all the new york city boroughs
10:05pm
including two young brothers swept from their mother's arms the day of the storm. dominion restored local power last night and are now sending much needed crews up north to help. 1,500 people are going, linemen, try trimmers and other workers. they're taking between 200 to 250 bucket trucks. now to a fox 5 weather alert. the last thing people living in the northeast want to hear, a new powerful storm could be forming that may hit the coast sometime next week. gary mcgrady is tracking the storm from the weather center. this is not good news. >> no, no, not at all. we'll just kind of start with the premise that the guidance again is suggesting that next week there's going to be another storm. again it goes without saying this is not going to be another sandy. the setup will number place. we have the jet stream dipping down by the middle part of next week. chilly air is coming in from the north and the warm air is scooting up the gulf coast
10:06pm
that. basically sets the stage here for storm development. it's looking like again on wednesday and the models that we've been watching, unfortunately the model that was so reliable with hurricane sandy is the model that is consistently predicting that this storm will develop and move up the east coast and move right along that classic nor'easter track which would cause more beach erosion, a lot of rain, a lot of wind in those affected areas from new jersey back up to new york and new england. there is still the possibility that there's not enough energy to grab the storm and it goes on off to sea. of course, that would be good for everybody, but it is hard to believe at this point, even though we're several days away that, a storm is not going to form along the east coast. so the likelihood is high that we're going to get a storm. of course, as usually is the case, the path is always what we're waiting on to be able to
10:07pm
at this point reasonably predict and as we get through the weekend and we get into monday and tuesday of next week, 24, 36, 48 hours out we'll have a good indication of exactly what this storm is going to do and even if it does head up the coast, it does not look like it brings us anything more than just a little bit of rain. another big story tonight, the son of a popular d.c. tv news anchor has been arrested tonight now facing a gun charge after an assault at her home in northwest. andrew skehan whose mother andrea roane anchors the morning show on channel 9 was taken into custody after the incident which triggered a day long search for more weapons. fox 5's audrey barnes has more. >> reporter: police say they were called to the home on tamarack street northwest after getting results of an assault there. neighbor andrew goode heard a gunshot. >> i thought i heard a single shot. it sounded like a shot. >> reporter: the home is owned by popular channel 9news anchor
10:08pm
andrea roane and her husband michael skehan. investigators say their 29-year- old son andrew skehan who also lives there has been charged with assault with a dangerous weapon, a gun. sources say he fired at a former girl friend outside the home. she was taken to the hospital by ambulance. police will not disclose the nature of her injuries. >> unfortunately those things happen. we as parents try to do our best and things like that happen. >> reporter: neighbors say his car was taped up and taken away on a flatbed truck after weapons were found inside it. investigators were in and out of the house more than eight hours today reportedly looking for more weapons. >> i just happened to look out the window and i could see someone down there at that house pulling a couple bags behind them putting them in the trunk. >> reporter: roan is a beloved member of the media and people living nearby say she's a great neighbor, too. they're hoping police will get to the bottom of it soon. >> it's very uncharacteristic
10:09pm
of this neighborhood. >> reporter: audrey barnes, fox 5 news. new tonight bail has been set at $2 million for this virginia man accused of trying to kill huisache girl friend and two police officers. -- kill his ex-girl friend and two police officers using pipe bombs. laurence stewart appeared in court today after taking police on a nationwide manhunt. he'll be extradited back to virginia. we now know the identity of a man police shot and killed today. justin turner of northeast stabbed one of the officers responding to a domestic dispute between turner and his grandfather on 17th street northeast. police say the officers tried to talk with the grandfather. turner approached them from behind stabbing one officer in the head and neck. the police chief says the officer turned and shot turner. >> this is pretty traumatic for all the officers that work together. the last thing with every want to do is take a life and it's -- we ever want to do is take a life and it's very upsetting. >> the officer is out of the
10:10pm
hospital tonight but suffered serious cuts no, word on the grandfather's condition. in virginia state police identified the teen-ager shot and killed by an officer. police say the officer shot 17- year-old evan newsom after he tried to attack the officer with the knife. the shooting happened early this morning near fauquier and stafford county lines. deputies from both counties were originally called to the scene to investigate a possible dui. virginia state police are investigating at the request of both sheriff's departments. it's the final weekend before the presidential election. we break down the latest on the candidates and their packed schedules. >> then later big changes to speed camera fines in d.c., some you'll like, one you may not, especially if you like to go really, really fast. >> later on the news edge advice for hurricane sandy survivors from people who have been there. the message is coming in from katrina survivors at 11:00. anncr: which do you believe?
10:11pm
10:12pm
10:13pm
what mitt romney's tv ads say about women? or what mitt romney himself says? mitt romney: do i believe the supreme court... should overturn roe v. wade? yes. and it would be my preference that they, that they... reverse roe v. wade. hopefully reverse roe v. wade. overturn roe v. wade. planned parenthood, we're going to get rid of that. i'll cut off funding to planned parenthood. anncr: no matter what mitt romney's ads say. we know what he'll do. president obama: i'm barack obama and... i approve this message. the fine pall monthly jobs report before the presidential -- final monthly jobs report before the presidential campaign came out today. fox's molly hennenberg has the
10:14pm
latest. >> companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> we've got higher unemployment today than when he took office. >> reporter: one jobs report, two different interpretations. the labor department says the economy added 171,000 new jobs in the month of october, but the rate of growth wasn't enough to keep the overall unemployment rate from rising by a 1/10 of a percentage point to 7.9%. >> the situation has not changed. it's not improved at all and it's really discouraging. >> reporter: even so he economic advisors to president obama say compared to the overwhelming job losses occurring when the president first took office, any growth is a sign the economy is recovering. >> over the last year we've added 2.1 million jobs. >> reporter: speaking to a crowd in ohio governor mitt romney seized to the uptick in the overall numbers as a sign that a change is needed in washington. >> accomplishing change is not just something i talk about. it is something i have actually
10:15pm
done and we need to have someone in the white house who cannot just talk about it but who can do it. >> reporter: president obama also is in ohio today telling a crowd in springfield that when it comes to the economy, he wants to finish what he started. >> the reason i'm here today is because we know we've got more work to do. as long as there's a single american who wants a job but can't find one, our work is not done. >> reporter: it's as by final push for the campaigns as both are dispatching their vice presidential candidates, spouses and even a former president to stump through swing state from now until election day on tuesday. fox 5 political analyst mark plotkin joins us tonight. we just heard her allude to this, the candidates making closing arguments still focusing on those key battleground states. let's start with pennsylvania, mitt romney making another push in that state. does that mean this is not a lock for the president? >> that was not even supposed to be a battleground state. barack obama won it four years ago by 10 points. romney hasn't been there in
10:16pm
over a month. he's coming there sunday. some say it's an act of desparation. they're trying to get any electoral votes they can. there are 20 in pennsylvania while others say wait, this is an indication of how close the race is and that romney is expanding the map while obama is contracting it, but we'll find out. the constituency he's after is upper income, suburban and also trying to get women's votes and also people who are jewish who live in those surrounding suburbs outside philadelphia. >> let's talk about virginia now. bill clinton will appear with the dave matthews band tomorrow. he's been a very successful surrogate for the president. what do you think this means? >> yeah. they're pulling in the big guy as they call him because they feel that people who were pleased in the eight years of the clinton administration and
10:17pm
what he represents and jobs added and prosperity and he's the most affective asset for the obama campaign. the president is very singular about not having somebody stand on stage with him. i bet you bill clinton will be standing on stage with him during the entire time when barack obama speaks because clinton is considered a real concrete asset that can change undecided votes. >> speaking of changing let's go back to mitt romney now. he seems to be moving more toward the middle in these closing days, not a surprise to the critics who called him a flip-flopper from the beginning. what do you think this will mean for those republicans who hoped he'd stay more conservative? >> let me quote the virginia governor bob mcdonnell who is a major supporter of mitt romney who said that his own elections are won in the middle. you remember his own press person, romney during the primaries said we're going to do etch a sketch, that is, go to the right to get the nomination and then have to go
10:18pm
to the have to get independents and moderates to win -- to the right to get independents and moderates to win the election. those who are for him will say he's pragmatic and those who oppose him will say once again you don't know what his true identity is. >> thanks so much for coming in tonight. keep it here on fox 5 for continuing political coverage leading up to election day and beyond. we invite you to weigh in on everything from the race to the senate contest in virginia and all those ballot measures in maryland. use the hashing to fox 5 d.c. you decide to tweet us your -- hashtag fox 5 d.c. you decide to tweet us your thoughts. there will be a puppet march this weekend gathering at lincoln park saturday morning. they'll march around the capitol to the reflecting pool. the march was organized after mitt romney called for the elimination of pbs during the first presidential debate. organizers say puppet marches are planned in new york city,
10:19pm
atlanta and seattle. the maryland general assembly's council says delegate tiffany alston has been permanently removed from poufs. she pled guilty to charges -- office. she pled guilty to charges that she used state funds. she reportedly gave up the possibility of reinstatement after agreeing to a plea deal. a d.c. commissioner is accused of using a government only phone line for combat lines. he's reportedly made hundreds of calls since last august. juddson said he called the chat lines to stay awake driving home from baltimore. could theout come of this sunday's football game predict the presidential election as well? we'll break down the so-called redskins rule, plus the players talk about why they must win their homecoming game. we'll be right back. president obama: there's just no quit in america...
10:20pm
10:21pm
and you're seeing that right now. over five million new jobs.
10:22pm
exports up forty one percent. home values... rising. our auto industry... back. and our heroes are coming home. we're not there yet, but we've made real progress and the... last thing we should do is turn back now. here's my plan for the next four years: making education and training a national priority; building on our manufacturing boom; boosting american-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. and ending the war in afghanistan, so we can... do some nation-building here at home. that's the right path. so read my plan, compare it to governor romney's... and decide which is better for you. it's an honor to be your president... and i'm asking for your vote... so together, we can keep moving america forward. i'm barack obama and i approve this message.
10:23pm
as we enter the final weekend of the presidential race the candidates will not only be eyeing the polls, they'll be keeping a close eye on the redskins games because the redskins have historically been a reliable predictor who wins the white house. in 17 of the past 18 presidential elections, if the redskins win their final home game before voting, the incumbent party wins the white house. if the skins lose, the challenger goes on to win. the only time that did not hold true information 2004. the redskins are playing the carolina panthers who are awful, by the way, at home sunday. fox 5's lindsay murphy joins us with a preview of the game where the coach has almost been fired. the general manager is out of there. the panthers are a mess. >> you're saying it looks good for president obama? >> so say the historically speaking. i know all this just because
10:24pm
the head coach ron rivera went to my high school. >> oh, cool. i was just thinking imagine if the bears are playing the redskins sunday. president obama would have to root for the bears but he wants the redskins to win. at this point the redskins are 3-5 and every player says there is a huge difference between lose and falling to 3-6 and winning to improve to 4-5 especially heading into your bye week. sunday they will be tested by a carolina team that has just one win and six losses, pretty bad, but that makes them a bit dangerous. the redskins who only have three wins also feel a sense of urgency. last week in a loss to the steelers the skins were never really in the game. that's the first time that's happened all year. they're also home. they've only one won game at fedex field in three tries this season. falling to 3-6 has put them in a big hole right as the bulk of their division play begins. >> you want to have that fighting chance. i feel like we have that
10:25pm
opportunity here. we have to, you know, take advantage of our opportunities. last week we fell short of that and what better way to get the taste out of your north than going out here this sunday and coming -- mouth than going out here this sunday and coming up with a big victory. >> at this point we can't continue to dig ourselves in any more of a hole than we're already in because obviously in november, december when the games are really important you won't don't want -- you don't want to technically have to put yourself out in a playoff position. >> the terrapins play tomorrow here on fox hosting georgia tech at 12:30. coming up next the plan for big changes for speed camera fines in the district. >> also ahead tonight the money mess in a local parking garage, why several cars were submerged in water, who's to blame. >> if you see a story we should look into, let us know. there's the number and the e- mail address. anncr: which do you believe?
10:26pm
what mitt romney's tv ads say about women? or what mitt romney himself says? mitt romney: do i believe the supreme court... should overturn roe v. wade? yes. and it would be my preference that they, that they... reverse roe v. wade. hopefully reverse roe v. wade. overturn roe v. wade. planned parenthood, we're going to get rid of that. i'll cut off funding to planned parenthood. anncr: no matter what mitt romney's ads say. we know what he'll do. president obama: i'm barack obama and... i approve this message. my name is julian bond. i know a little something about fighting for what's right and just. maryland's gay and lesbian families share the same values and they should share in the right to marry. i believe people of faith understand this isn't about any one religious belief. it's about protecting the civil right to make a lifelong commitment to the person you love. join me in supporting question 6. it's the right thing to do.
10:27pm
10:28pm
10:29pm
this is fox 5 news at 10:00. d.c. mayor vincent gray is announcing big changes to speed camera fines which many drivers feel are excessive. here's the breakdown of the proposed changes. if you're going 10 miles over, the final drop from 75 to 50 bucks, 11 to 15 miles over the limit, fines will drop from 125 bucks to 100 bucks. if you're caught driving 25 miles per hour over the speed limit, the fine goes up 250 to $300. this change comes as city council considers a plan that would slash fines even more. fox 5's matt ackland has this story. >> with a council committee ready to take on those high speed camera fines next monday, mayor gray unveiled his own plan. >> we continue to work on this up through including yesterday and we are ready to announce the direction that we are going to be pursuing. >> under a plan proposed by
10:30pm
council members mary cheh and tommy wells basically all speed camera fines would be lowered to 50 bucks. chief lanier gave that idea a clear thumbs down. >> on a safety perspective i think if you drop the fines down on $50, there's no deterrent and some people see that as a cost of doing business. >> but not so says aaa's john townsend who cite experts claim the amount of the fine does not matter. he points to our neighbors as an example. >> the fines are only $40 in the state of maryland, but yet people are complying with the law. people are slowing down and the number of violations has decreased in that state. >> no one denies d.c. coffers are overflowing with money from speed camera tickets. so the mayor said he would put that money to work. >> the additional money generated by speeding fines will be used to hire 100 new police officers. >> council member tommy wells supports the idea of more officers on the street, but says the mayor's plan still
10:31pm
uses camera fines to fatten up the budget. >> when we balance the budget, it should be done with taxes and we vote on it. we shouldn't be using fines across the city to balance the city's budget. >> 1 thing to point out under the mayor's plan, anything 10 miles or under over the speed limit will get you a $50 ticket. the thing is those speed light cameras throughout the city chief lanier said, they don't send out speeding tickets for 0 to 11 miles over the speed limit. so basically an officer is going to have to write you a ticket under that plan. also the mayor talked about a complete review of all speed limits throughout the district. he said some could be lowered. some could be increased. in the district matt ackland, fox 5 news. if you thought you spotted some snowplows on the roads in d.c. today, you were not seeing things. the district held a snow team practice run today to make sure they're prepared. more than 1,000 workers took part in the exercise headed out
10:32pm
from rfk to refamiliarize themselves with the routes and equipment. mayor gray says the city is ready more than ever. >> we've got 45 new trucks. we've got new technology. we've got greater access to additional trucks. i think we've got the most modern equipment that we possibly can. >> about 700 snowplow drivers drove their routes. administrators, supervisors, logistical team members practiced their roles. life is back to normal along wisconsin avenue in bethesda tonight, but this morning a different story. a water main undergoing repairs began leaking massive amounts of water flooding out the building's parking garage submerging cars in water. fox 5's bob barnard shows us. >> reporter: this is what it looked like down there in the parking garage around 10:00 this morning. they're taking pictures of the five cars nearly submerged in muddy waters. this is a mercedes, parked behind it another car likely totaled. >> oh, it's horrible.
10:33pm
i mean it's like sandy only it was created by an error i'll say. >> reporter: diane wax's car is safe, not one of these thanks to a heads up neighbor. >> one of my friends in the building called me about 7:00 to tell me that the garage was flooding and that i needed to move my car up. >> reporter: this happened beneath a condominium complex along wisconsin avenue in bethesda just north of bradley boulevard near the cvs, petsmart and staples. a spokeswoman for wssc, the washington suburban is anker to commission, says crews over-- sanitary commission, says crews overnight were installing a new water main over the curb in front of the be. >> the contractors were in the practice of -- of the building. >> the contractors were in the practice of hooking up the new line to the building when we noticed flooding to the low level of the parking garage. >> reporter: residents can't get down there to see, the
10:34pm
stairwell also underwater. only the people trying to clean up the mess are allowed down there. lee let us see for ourselves. back on the street -- they let us see for ourselves. back on the street we showed our photos of the cars to the people who lived there. >> gone. very sad. >> reporter: other crews were called to pump out the water. wssc told us it's not raw sewage, just mud turning the water brown. as for the source of the trouble? >> we're in the process of investigating that right now. obviously the new line isn't where the leak is. so we're looking in the building and under the ground to see if we can find the source of how the water is entering this building. >> reporter: a number of homes and businesses in this area were without water service for a time this morning. that's been taken care of. wssc says if they caused the flooding, they'll make it right for the owners whose cars were trashed. in bethesda, bob barnard, fox 5 news. coming up next an escaped murderer caught after three days on the run, how he broke
10:35pm
out of prison and where investigators finally caught him. >> later tonight she's created a phenomenon for women. now find out where her first store is opening in our area. more people marrying your hired, 171,000 -- hearing you're hired, 171,000 workers being hired this month. meantime in new jersey gas lines are extending for miles hit really, but fuel isn't the big issue now. it's patience running very low. aaa saying roughly 60% of new jersey gas stations are closed now and amid all this gas prices are falling to national average going down 22 days in a row, $3.50 a gallon now simply because people can't get gas. after that fuel efficient car you're driving, turns out it might not be so efficient. the epa says a number of
10:36pm
hyundai and kia automobiles have been overstating gas mileage on most of the newer models. both companies say they're sorry for the mistake. that's business. i'm neil cavuto.   >> this fox 5 stock market report is brought to you by your lexus dealer. live life heroically. charlie rose: will you endorse prpresident obama?

other places in new york. i'm going to go to west virginia tomorrow. they have a different sort of storm, a lot of snow, but i would put staten island right near the top. >> reporter: right now i'm at a red cross relief site behind a high school here on staten island. i'll show you some of the activity. it is just buzzing and has been buzzing all day long with people who have lost everything who have come here looking for clothing, for hot food, for water, anything that will help make their lives just a little better. we were told by the red cross that they would shut this place down as soon as it got dark, but then they set up this tent and started moving all the supplies in. this relief site for the people who lost everything has been a godsend. the red cross has also set up a site at a shopping center nearby where people can go and get hot meals. in addition to that, they have what are called emergency response vehicles, at least 10 of them where they can load up as many as 500 meals and drive
10:46pm
into the worst areas of staten island where people have lost everything and they can actually feed them right out of those trucks. reporting from staten island paul wagner, fox 5 news. the effects of sandy are still lingering in garrett county, maryland. utility companies have only restored power to about half the homes and businesses who went dark during the storm. most of those outages are due to the 30-inch snowfall sandy brought to western maryland. utility companies won't be able to fully restore garrett county until next week. virginia officials were worried snow may have trapped people in mountainous rural areas. they're sending in blackhawk helicopters to check communities. their main concern is elderly or ill people. about 20% of the two counties hit hard with heavy snow remain cut off from the outside world. >> i'm always amazed to see the difference of what happened on the eastern shore, rain and some wind and to see 30 inches of snow. >> when you see extremes like
10:47pm
that, you know it was a very violent large storm because on the one side of that storm all that warm air is coming up and on the backside it's drawing in cold air from the north and northwest and so the extremes in weather always point towards the extreme. i know it sounds cliche, but when you have those big extremes, you know it was some sort of big storm. >> crazy storm. listen, tonight we're still stuck under clouds, a canopy of clouds out there, and the wind is blowing. i'll show you gusts in a second. those two things are keeping the temperatures from dropping. however, you step outside, it feel prose it i cold with the wind chill values hover -- pretty cold with the wind chill values hovering around the 30s. this weekend you need to remember clocks will fall back. you'll get your extra sleep saturday night into sunday morning, not a bad weekend. we're going to get the clouds out of here, certainly more sunshine on sunday than what we're going to have tomorrow, but i think tomorrow we should
10:48pm
have good amounts of sunshine. tomorrow we should have more sun than we've had in quite a while and you notice here temperatures for both days in the lower 50s, again with a little bit more sunshine on sunday. the thought is that it should be just a little bit warmer. 49 in the city, temperatures a little bit cooler, but notice fredericksburg down to 40 degrees, not much wind there, culpeper 46, dulles 45. the winds will stay up a little bit overnight tonight, but as the clouds eventually begin to break up, the temperatures will start to drop, but speaking of wind, it's still very gusty out there right now, the wind gusts in the city at 20 miles per hour, gaithersburg 21 and a little bit stronger out there along the i-81 corridor with middle to upper 20s with wind gusts. again down to the south it's not gusty, not very windy either and temperatures are starting to drop. you can see the clouds here. they're holding strong, but it does look like all trends point
10:49pm
here towards the fact that these clouds will be breaking up overnight tonight. doesn't mean much for us other than temperatures will get a little colder and we will end up with sunshine for tomorrow. again don't think it's going to be completely sunny, but we'll get good amounts. the bigger picture, you still see the swirl here, but the swirl is beginning to break up. the swirl is what's left over from sandy starting to move farther up to the north and to the east. so this roadblock that we've had for the last several days in the atmosphere kind of keeping this trough of low pressure in place again is beginning to break down just a little. it's been nice and warm down through the south here, some record temperatures down through texas and the southern central plains and we have been stuck under this trough and chilly air mass, but as the remnants of sandy move out, that will open things up a bit. high pressure fills in for the weekend. so that's why we're projecting and forecasting the possibility of a little bit of sun coming through, but that does not mean it's going to be much warmer.
10:50pm
temperatures will stay in the 50s. there is this next storm next week, the potential nor'easter, and by saturday and sunday we'll begin to see that piece of energy or at least one of the pieces of energy coming into the pacific northwest and then it's going to take a big dive all the way down through florida, come back up the east coast by wednesday of next week and that's when we think things will begin to come together for that nor'easter and all fingers crossed that that nor'easter will actually head on out to sea and not run up the east coast, but right now it's a little too early to tell. 39 degrees tonight, colder out in the suburbs. the clouds will be breaking up. winds will calm down a little bit from where they are now. they won't be so gusty, northwest 5 to 10 miles per hour and finally tomorrow, yes, a return to some sunshine, some substantial sunshine, not just peeks of sunshine and it will be breezy, too. the northwesterly winds will kick in 10 to 15 miles per hour
10:51pm
and we'll easily have some gusts tomorrow afternoon which will take us up to around 20 to 25 miles per hour. so even with the sunshine with temperatures in the lower 50s and a little breezy condition it will feel cool out there. not so breezy on sunday. here's your fox 5 accuweather seven-day forecast. we're in the lower 50s this weekend. again, don't forget to set the clocks back on saturday night. monday pretty good, 53. right now tuesday to vote looks good, 52 and then we get into wednesday. that's when we think the nor'easter will take shape off the coast and we'll figure out if it goes out to sea or on the east coast. >> hopefully it will hold off till after the election. it is apple's newest device. the ipad mini hit store shelves today. people lined up outside stores around the world for a chance to buy the newportable tablet. it's believed the new ipad will sell as many as 1.5 million
10:52pm
